Over 150 journalists, educators, citizens and media reformers gather for "Journalism That Matters: The DC Sessions" to help create The Next Newsroom and
consider the future and purpose of journalism.
Seven experts charted the rapid evolution of citizen media, including its impact on the public, politics, and on journalism teaching and practice. This is an edited version of the 90 minute public forum.
